Mentoring Marriages – Meetup

Come share whats in ‘your toolbox’. 42b

We meet at members homes and their churches each week during the school year and 1x/month during the summer.

2 hr & 15 min sessions go like this: Each segment is optional and you are free to come/go as you are able.

  • 6:15-6:30  Snacks to pass.
    • Hosts do not bring anything. Others, when you confirm attendance specify ‘healthy snack/ drink/ unhealthy snack/ plates, naps, cups’ so others can pick something else.
  • 6:30 – 7:15 Open presentations.
    • Optional participation – In the round share the resource/ book/ tip you have. Be as creative as you’d like. Photos from ‘way back when’ ?, a couple in need that we can help, an activity, place or group you’ve found that would support marital efforts.
    • Also will include ‘special invited guests’ – who would you like to nominate ?
  • 7:30 – 8:30 Curriculum.
    • 12 weeks starting 2/14: We are currently going thru http://www.marriagementoring.com/ material in a structured ‘facilitator with your feedback & input’ format.

Tuesday evenings starting 2/21.

What Is a Marriage Mentor?

“What I need is someone to talk to who has walked down the path ….” … offer the distance and objectivity that a mentor gives. A mentor is not:

  • a mother or father.
  • a friend.
  • “on call” for every little crisis.
  • a know-it-all.
  • committed long-term.
